                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JADE MOUNTAIN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani 
Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  SPIRALS caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested MEADOWLARK and was awarded 17 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SPIRALS put down 
MEADOWLARK, causing her to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
STONE HAMMER made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious THE HAPPY F.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in JADE 
MOUNTAIN seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in JADE MOUNTAIN these days is SAND DANCERS.  At least, most blades in 
town are looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of APOKOLIPS are catching 
the bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  
Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that 
many fighters are after HAN KANG.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few 
eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that HOUND ARCHON posted a challenge 
against the more highly recognized HAN KANG.  The results, you ask?  Well, the 
firebrand HOUND ARCHON subdued HAN KANG.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline 
of steel.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  My condolences to APOKOLIPS for their loss of a 
very promising warrior, MADAME HYDRA.  MADAME HYDRA went to doom before the arms of 
ZELBAN SWORDBITER, a warrior of JADE MOUNTAIN.  Some say a warrior is judged by the 
way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the 
belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in JADE MOUNTAIN.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must 
I keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of 
Alastari await me!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, 
but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

"Not bad so far." -- *says* mysterious mgr. Apokolips

Bad Handwriting -- I'm coming for you. -- Daken

Three-two, we can live with that.  Even though *I* lost to a standby; I'm not so vain
I can't notice that two of my teammates defeated real gladiators.  Ah, not to say
that Captain Mondinor isn't real, but he fights under rigid restrictions.  I wouldn't
like to be a standby. -- Stone Hammer
